LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring  Claude  Long upon the occasion of his
designation as recipient of the Outstanding Bellman of the  Year  Award,
by the New York State Hospitality and Tourism Association

WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body that individuals who
distinguish themselves in their profession, dedicating themselves to its
enhancement and leading it in new directions, are an asset beyond remun-
eration and cannot be sufficiently extolled; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
Claude Long of the Albany Hilton Hotel upon the occasion of  his  desig-
nation as recipient of the Outstanding Bellman of the Year Award, by the
New  York State Hospitality and Tourism Association; to be celebrated at
the Stars of the Industry Gala Dinner on March 3, 2014, at the  Marriott
Hotel in Colonie, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  The New York State Hospitality and Tourism Association nomi-
nated 200 members in ten categories  and  included  hospitality  workers
from  1,200  member  hotels across the state; Claude Long stood out in a
highly competitive field that included some of  the  best  bellmen  from
world-class New York City hotels; and
  WHEREAS,  In  a  career  spanning  15 years at the Albany Hilton, this
remarkable man has become  known  for  his  kindness,  work  ethic,  and
professionalism;  whether dealing with celebrities, politicians or ordi-
nary people, Claude Long is noted for brightening up people's days; and
  WHEREAS, Claude Long  trained  in  the  hospitality  industry  at  the
Schuyler  Inn  in  Menands,  New  York,  overcoming  much adversity; his
achievement is an inspiration to all of those seeking to be the best  in
their profession; and
  WHEREAS,  Claude  Long's many duties include greeting new arrivals and
assisting them throughout their stay in the Albany area; he is responsi-
ble for the hotel shuttle  which  transports  guests  to  and  from  the
airport  and  train  station  and,  he  is often the first and last face
customers see; and
  WHEREAS, Claude Long's dedication, attention to detail and willingness
to go beyond the call of duty has not gone unnoticed; and
  WHEREAS, With him throughout have been his longtime partner, Constance
Brown, and their daughter, Liyana Long, as  well  as  many  friends  and
co-workers,  all  of  whom  feel privileged to be a part of his life and
rejoice in his achievements; and
  WHEREAS, In recognition of his devotion,  commitment  and  efforts  on
behalf  of  his  community  and his profession, it is the custom of this
Legislative Body to extend its highest commendation to Claude Long; now,
therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
honor  Claude  Long upon the occasion of his designation as recipient of
the Outstanding Bellman of the Year Award, by the New York State  Hospi-
tality and Tourism Association; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Claude Long.
